PREQUEL: I've enjoyed many opportunities to play key roles to help drive regional, national and global brands, including: Compaq, General Electric, Verizon, The Boston Celtics, Fedex, Campbell's Soup Company, Royal Caribbean, Eastpak Backpacks, Prentice Hall Publishers, Hewlett-Packard, Fidelity Investments, IBM, State Street Global Advisors, Vista Higher Learning.

​MANIFESTO: I believe that different design disciplines nourish one another, that ideas come from many sources, and that design practice exists to develop stories that connect business to an audience. In each case, I endeavor to work with my client to understand that audience, and craft thoughtful and creative solutions that tell your story, and help drive engagement.

AN ORIGIN STORY: When I was young, my father told me about a stable he worked at when he was a teenager. He also entertained us sometimes by sketching one of the horses that he remembered from the stable. To me, watching him sketch his horse was like magic, and I asked him to 'draw the horse' many, many times.

Fast forward a few years and, as a young man, I moved to Boston to attend Mass College of Art & Design. And, yada-yada-yada, you're here, looking at my website.

I've always believed that the way my dad's horse made me feel, played a big role in moving me toward this career that I love.
